Tim Scott Says Black Voters Are Moving To Trump For A Better Life

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said on Sunday that more black voters are flocking to former President Donald Trump’s camp due to “jobs and justice.”

Scott made the assertions that Black Americans would have it better with Trump while discussing the Republican presidential candidate and President Joe Biden’s separate efforts to win over black voters during a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Here’s what I can tell you, is that under Donald Trump, we were better off. There are two things that are driving black votes back to Donald Trump, jobs and justice. Number one, under Donald Trump, our wages were going up. Right now, fairness is going down. But if you’re really concerned about racial justice in America, let’s not forget, Joe Biden is the guy that talked about racial jungles as a result of desegregation,” Scott stated.

“Let’s not forget the fact that Joe Biden is the president who said, ‘if you don’t vote for me, you can’t be black’, an old white dude telling me I can’t be black if I don’t vote for him. This is the president who said that if — that the Republican Party wants to put you back in chains,” the former Republican presidential primary candidate continued.

“The only person I have seen restraining black folks economically is the Joe Biden economy. So, I find it quite insulting to suggest that Joe Biden does not have serious concerns, when his own vice president, Kamala Harris, said he supported segregation. And if you look in cities like Chicago today, the elimination of charter schools under Joe Biden resegregates schools in America. We need four more years of common sense under Donald Trump, and not four more years of segregation under Joe Biden,” Scott added.

During the interview, Scott criticized an ad from the Biden campaign, which launched a series of attacks against Trump, accusing him of wrong treatment of the Black community.

“Donald Trump disrespecting Black folk is nothing new. It’s why Trump stood with violent white supremacists, warned of a bloodbath if he loses the next election, and, if he’s president again, vowed to be a dictator who wants revenge on his enemies,” a narrator in the ad said.
